"While surely not constituting an exhaustive and concluding portrait of the artist’s practice, this book aims at presenting a solid sample of the artist’s conceptual universe by pairing images with texts, which do not analyse the artist’s practice rather build an expanded system of alliances and significations. In this sense, instead of offering a closed interpretation this publication asks the readers to build their own understanding of the work out of the collected materials. Employing a history of abstraction reframed by non-hierarchical and non-humancentric conceptions of the world, the artist’s practice disseminates powerful concepts, images and situations which hold strong reverberations in our current social environments."
